October sees the beginning of autumn’s beautiful color palette take effect among leaves, turning what was once a vibrant green into stunning shades of auburn, sienna, rust, gold and orange. While it may take a little while longer for Long Island to feel fall’s crisp breath of fresh air, Mount Airy Casino Resort in the Poconos is the perfect weekend escape to the mountains.
A destination for all seasons, the picturesque Pocono Mountains take center stage in the fall, with more than 260 miles of hiking and biking trails, travelers can explore vistas, tumbling waterfalls and lush foliage. For a limited time this season, Mount Airy is offering a Mountainous Getaway fall package that includes everything one would need to experience a perfect weekend in the Poconos.
“In autumn, the Pocono Mountains is ablaze with brilliant fall foliage,” said Vincent Jordan, vice president of marketing and gaming operations for Mount Airy Casino Resort. “Our Mountainous Getaway package is designed for guests to get a taste of the destination’s most sought-after seasonal experiences, all while enjoying the amenities of a vibrant resort in the heart of Mt. Pocono.”
The appealing package includes a two-night stay in one of Mount Airy Casino Resort’s spacious deluxe rooms and one romantic dinner for two at Bistecca by Il Mulino, where guests can dine on hand-crafted pasta, local seafood and farm-fresh vegetables prepared in the classic fashion of Italy’s Abruzzo cuisine. Take in a tasting with a complimentary wine or beer flight for two at Mountain View Vineyard and Brewery, along with a self-guided tour of their sustainable vineyards and rain gardens. If booked in advance, guests will also receive a tour of the winemaking and brewing areas. Perfect for fall, the package also includes two pumpkin spice cocktail vouchers and for those who want to relax, one complimentary daybed at the pool or cabana at Get Wet, an indoor/outdoor pool, bar and nightclub destination. Last but not least, the package also includes one round of 18-hole golf for two for those who want to add a bit of sport to their leisure time.
While you’re in the Poconos, the charming town of Jim Thorpe even has its very own Fall Foliage Festival complete with scenic train rides, live music and delicious food from local vendors.
The Mountainous Getaway package offer is valid Sunday through Thursday through Nov. 1. A cabana or day bed must be reserved at time of booking; subject to availability. Package rates begin at $578 plus taxes and resort fees.
